In many cases, these firmware updates to disable third-party chips like the ones on our Premium Cartridges, Although we are constantly updating our chips versions to combat this, keeping ourselves up to date with all Epson updates, it is still highly recommended that you disable automatic updates of the printer software to stop firmware being updated.
